Dusk on Oakwoods Road
I have been told that Stephen King lived here in North Berwick a few years back . He did mention the old mill in "Needfull Things". This abandoned farmhouse and barns is out on Oakwoods Road. He could have written about this place for sure. It got very quiet as dusk approached and the abandoned old cars in the overgrown weeds in the woods and the way the last rays of sun caught the window panes making it look like a bank of shoplights in the upstairs room. I even made the sound of a chainsaw to my friend as we painted. Ol' Leatherface could have come out the side door at any time.... 10 x 12" in oil on canvas panel.
